From Chapter 1: “The Path to Happiness”

Why should you meditate?

The answer is very simple: to be happy.

Which is the only reason you’re here.

That might sound like a very simple take on the meaning of life, but I believe it with every fiber in my body.

Yes, I’m certain that if we were to strip away our egos, desires, fears, and insecurities, all that would be left is happiness.

There are days where it feels like we can almost touch this truth. Days where when we wake up, the sun seems to be shining a little brighter, the birds are singing a little bit louder, and we walk out into the world with a bounce in our step and a song in our heart.

Yet there are also days when we start out feeling nervous about what lies ahead of us, unsure about the situations we’re about to encounter. Where it could be eighty degrees and sunny out, but we feel like we’re walking through a cold, dark world.

The purpose of this book is to show you that you can control which of those worlds you live in. You can decide that no matter what is happening around you, the sun will always be shining in your world.

Or you can decide that your world is always going to be a cold, dark place.

The point is, the external world doesn’t make that choice.

You do.

Obviously most people would prefer to live in the sunshine. The problem is that they just don’t know how to step into it.

I’m here to tell you that meditation can take you there. That sitting in silence for twenty minutes can be a tool to wash away the pain, frustration, and insecurities that have been coloring your existence and allow you to get back to the state of happiness that is your birthright.

The path that I will lay out in this book represents the simplest route between your current state and that happiness. As your guide, I will not lead you on any detours or suggest that we take the more scenic route. No, this is a simple and straightforward guide on how to use the tool of meditation to get the most out of your life—written with the authority of someone who has used that very tool every day for the past fifteen years himself.

I want to keep this book very simple and direct in order to help demystify meditation. To clear up any misconceptions or uneasiness that you might have about this ancient practice and help you see that it’s a valuable and relevant tool in the modern world. Just the fact that you’re reading these words means that at the very least you’re curious about the practice, but maybe there’s still something that’s holding you back from committing fully. Maybe you still have a vague sense that there’s something “foreign” or “mystical” about meditation. Even worse, something “ungodly.” Or maybe you’re still skeptical that it “really” works. Or maybe—and this one always makes me laugh—you believe that it could help you, but you’re just too “busy” to meditate.

I’ll dive into these misconceptions, and several other ones, over the course of the book, but let me say right here that there is nothing “foreign” about meditation. In fact, it’s way more mainstream than you probably realize. Oprah. Jerry Seinfeld. Paul McCartney. Phil Jackson. Ellen DeGeneres. Forest Whitaker. These are all people that you know of and whose success has inspired millions of people. And they all meditate and credit the practice as one of the foundations of their success. I’ll be sharing their thoughts on meditation, and the thoughts of many leaders from the arts, business, education, science, and the spiritual communities, throughout the book, because I want you to realize that when you become a meditator, you are joining a community of successful people. A community of people who move through life on their own terms and maximize their potential.

90% of the book covers the benefits of meditation and not meditation itself. This could get frustrating if you already know the benefits and/or if you are not interested in covering them in such depths.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I needed that... 5 mars 2014
Par Tam - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I'm at a time in my life when I am considering many changes... and I'm in search of answers. I bought this book today and I read it today. I've always known that all of the answers to all of your questions are within you... I just didn't know how to get the answers. Or, more importantly, perhaps I didn't have the confidence to trust my own thoughts. I now have a vehicle... a system... that I will put into motion so that I can live my best life.

This book may not affect others or have any impact whatsoever to the next reader. For me, I received the message at the right time; when I needed it, and when I could receive it.

Let me start off with a little background. 1st off, I like Russell Simmons. I believe he is trying to spread peace and happiness to the world. I am one of his Twitter followers. I also do Yoga, and used to meditate , but for various reasons, I've stopped doing it. The reasons I stopped doing it are discussed in this book. "I don't have time., My house is never quiet. I'm just too tired to do it." That being said, I've read many books on Meditation and Buddhism. I never really got into Transcendental Meditation b/c it's very expensive. Anyway, enough about me. I bought this book on Kindle last night and was finished with it this morning. Its a very quick , easy read at around 209 pages. There are 5 Parts to this book. Why meditate, Why you think you can't meditate, The physical benefits of meditation, Living up to your potential, and How to meditate. Now perhaps because I've read all about meditation and its benefits, I found this book to be pretty wasteful. For me, there was no new info. There are pages talking about how it regulates your nervous system, it's good for high blood pressure, etc. Is it me, or do most people already know this? ,Also, he talks about how to actually meditate in the last chapter. Basically this is it. Sit down for 20 min and twice a day, internally chant "Rum." Yes, Rum. This is your mantra he's given you. Groundbreaking! There is absolutely nothing new in this book for anyone who has been meditating, this book is not for you. This is for someone who really knows absolutely nothing about meditating and it's many benefits. Russell also talks about getting into Transcendental Meditation, but really doesn't delve into it, which was disappointing. In any case, if you haven't done so, I'd encourage you to read books by Thich Nhat Hanh, in particular,The Miracle of Mindfulness: An Introduction to the Practice of Meditation Anyway, this isn't a bad book. It's quick and easy enough to read. I just believe this is as basic as it gets in this subject. Best of luck to all in your journey!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 wonderful book! 5 mars 2014
Par claudia ann carli - Publié sur
this book is a wonderful tool to help you learn how to meditate. it also simply and clearly explains the reason that every human on the planet should be mediating, for personal health and the health of humanity.
simmons style is conversational and extremely user friendly. he illustrates several of the concepts in the book using celebrity anecdotes as well as his own experiences. i have dabbled in mediation for a few years using pre-recorded guided meditations, but have never kept up a steady practice. i tried the meditation instructions in the book and found that the 20 minutes went by quicker than ever before. and i find that i am able to meditate more deeply without using a prerecorded guide.
i highly recommend this book to everyone.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I copped the book after hearing Russell talk about it on the Combat Jack Show 17 mars 2014

I had my doubts. I've tried meditation off and on before but never stuck to it. But Russ sold me on it. The book is a great, quick read, and I can't wait to put this into use.
Will you start dating super models like Russ after meditating? Probably not.
Will you become a millionaire like Russ after meditating? Probably not.
Will you somehow manage to reverse the aging process in a Benjamin Button-esque fashion like Russ after meditating? Probably not.
But it can make you happier, give you a clearer focus, and improve your mental as well as physical health.
So that works for me.

This book gives you a simple blueprint for 'real' success in life. It's very easy to follow and to the point. I suggest that it be read with an open mind and trust that there's a REASON for your reading it. A MUST READ.
